On January 23, 2006, Google Maps was updated to use the same satellite image database as Google Earth. On March 12, 2006, Google Mars was launched, which features a draggable map and satellite imagery of the planet Mars. Source Wikipedia.

The maps and images in Google Maps (and Google Earth) are updated on a continuous basis. There is usually a bulk update every 2 weeks but only a few areas are updated at a given time. On average the maps are 3 years old.

Due to overwhelming demand when a given area will be updated Google has created a new e-mail notification service. Check out 'Follow Your World' in related links below.
